The race for the top seeds in the Southern Conference tournament in the North division will almost absolutely go into the final weekend of regular season play.
App St 4-4
It is somewhat odd that Samford has only played 6 league games while Appalachian and Chattanooga have both played 8 league games. Chattanooga has yet to win a road game but are getting closer after a 1 point loss at Elon. The Phoenix’ conference wins include The Citadel, Chattanooga, UNCG, and Furman, who have a combined record of 10-20 in SoCon play. Elon still has to face Appalachian and Western Carolina twice, Wofford, Davidson and Charleston. Appalachian and Elon currently hold the top 2 seeds, and are the only teams in the North with 4 conference wins. Elon travels to Western on Thursday while Appalachian travels to UNCG. Appalachian hosts Elon next Saturday. This will be a huge week for the North standings as far as tiebreakers go later in the season.
